The HMC Auxiliary Volunteers raise money throughout the year from a number of Auxiliary events, such as bake sales, a Christmas Bazaar, jewelry sales and other events. The Auxiliary also operates the hospital Gift Shop, and proceeds from these sales fund not only gifts to the hospital for special purchases, but the many other activities of the Auxiliary members that touch the lives of patients, visitors, hospital staff, and others daily.

In the past the Auxiliary has given teddy bears and balloons to pediatric emergency room patients and newborn babies, bought and distributed magazines for patients throughout the hospital, donated funds to the Hardin County Nursing Home’s van fund and presented educational scholarship to individuals pursuing healthcare careers. Notes of appreciation and encouragement were sent by the Auxiliary to staff members on special occasions throughout the year, and members frequently assisted staff and visitors in selecting just the right item from the Gift Shop.

The HMC Auxiliary also played a large role in helping raise funds to open The Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center and most recently purchased new outdoor furniture for the nursing home, HMC Health and Rehabilitation.

In addition, the HMC Auxiliary members afford hospitality and assistance to patients and visitors as they enter the Hardin Medical Center. At any time you may find the volunteers checking on patients and visitors in the lobbies and waiting areas, assisting with wheelchair transports, answering questions, helping with bingo games in the nursing home, or cheerfully manning the hospital’s gift shop. Hardin Medical Center’s Hospital Auxiliary is a valuable asset not only to the hospital, but also to each individual its members serve.
